Quick easy and cheap dryer
Posted 23 May 2005 - 01:43 AM
Made out of a Gladware container and a computer fan(which is connected to PC still :D )
Here is the lid
My foaf cut out a small square like hole to accept the computer fan
Not sure of what size the fan is. It should be standard size.
My foaf also used a metal paper clip heated to burn 2 small holes. The hole will have a piece of thick rubber band put in them as a way to secure the fan down.
Side view of the bin.
My foaf just melted multiple slits in the side to let air pass through.
It's stuck on range due to it being connected to the computer but it is very cheap and easy.
The fan had a small piece of foam put over the top with tape to act as a small filter.
The fan is faced to blow into the chamber. It then vents through the holes made.
My Foaf has tried dessicants and this has blown it out of the water in time length to dry.

I know it doesn't do much but it will help prevent big things from falling in.

You still need to use dessicant before packaging to make sure the fruits are crispy dry. One should only use dessicant after getting as dry as possible with either a fan or open air.
especially in these next coming months eh... summer sux for mushie growing, not looking forward to it.. they only get as dry as the rh in the room they are drying in. :) time to get the AC's and the Dehumidifiers out. hehe

Wow! Yeah I doubt my friend will ever go that big. They're doing it more for the fun of growing than mass production.
hey digi... if you ever have to dry a bunch of mushies just get a laundry basket and a box fan... http://mycotopia.net...html?1072655415 works great. :)
